Default Top 3 Fastest Cars in the World

1 - Barabus TKR
The name is not to be confused with the German tuner Brabus, as she's built by the British company Barabus Sportscars Ltd and will be produced in Italy. She has 1005 horsepower, it can do 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in...unbelievably...1.67 seconds (manufacturer's results). And, surprisingly, this power doesn't come from a huge engine, but rather from a "small" 6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers.

2 - Bugatti EB 16/4 Veyron
Many people think this monster is still the fastest, most powerful and most expensive street-legal production car in the world. Indeed, she has a proven top speed of 253.2 mph (407.9 km/h). Built by the German carmaker Volkswagen through its subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles SAS, in France, it represents almost 70 years or racing history, with the Bugatti cars ruling the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours competition in the 1930s and 1940s. She has a monster of an engine, too, a 8.0 L quad-turbo W16 that puts out a massive 1001 hp of thrust.

3 - Koenigsegg CCR
The second latest supercar form the Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg, she has a 4.7 L twin supercharged DOHC V8 engine, 806 hp, a 0-60 mph acceleration of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 251 mph (403 km/h)

Who cares?

It would be a blast to drive!

(PS, the OP forgot to mention the Barabus TKR top speed. According to Autoblog, it's 270MPH..)

Probably get pretty good mileage if you don't mash that gas pedal hard.

If you gotta ask, it's already too expensive!

$1.5 million USD's.

If you can afford this car, the fact that it can empty a single tank of fuel in just minutes is not an issue.

IMHO you would think for $1.5M they could also make it look good!

I remember reading an article (Car and Driver I think) when I was a teen about the "88 Sledgehammer Corvette .. It was basically a Vette beefed up by Callaway. Took that stock 350 vette engine and slapped a twin turbo on it. I remember them stating it jumped to 888bhp and had a max speed of around 255mph or some shit. They said it was so sweet to drive casual that your grandmother could drive it. But at flooring the pedal at 80mph would still pin you back in your seat. Not bad from a small block and $280,000 (be it back in ''88).. Was supposedly the fastest production car ever built at the time. If you call 2 production.. Just think what they could do with the LS9 ...

Let us not forget the Ford/A.C Cobra, an all aluminum small sports car body with a 429 CI NASCAR engine. The fastest thing I have ever been behind the wheel of. Although the Porsche 959 was blindingly fast as well...
